Save Our Service's
Please sign Petition and give your support too save all Sheltered Housing Complex's within the Glasgow area.I am currently living within a Sheltered Housing Complex and feel that i need too set up this petition to try save the support that i currently recieve.
Glasgow City Council(GCC) are cutting the support budget in April 2017 by 30%(£1,000,000)this leaves £2,000,000 to be shared city wide for all Sheltered Housing Support,as of December 2017 this £2,000,000 will be withdrawn leaving nothing in the pot for Sheltered Housing Support.
We have an older population and people living longer and Sheltered Housing is a preventative service allowing older people to live in there homes longer and as independently as possible stopping us from reaching the HIGH NEEDS which GCC have stated that they wanted too fund.
Sheltered Housing Support tenants to live in their own homes as independently as possible and support them maintain there tenacies.Reducing or removing the support i receive could resultin health deterioration, isolation and increas admission into hospitals, beds blocking because the older person may not or can not go home as there are no support for them until they are able to get back on their feet.
Family members also rely on the support provided by Shelteered Housing staff to pick up deterioration in their family members health, they rely on Sheltered Housing staff to make sure there loved ones are safe and well,they rely on Sheltered Housing staff checking that their loved ones are on top off things like paying bills,collecting prescription's when unwell,light shopping, personal care when urgently needed,provide 24hour support and creating a safe environment for their loved ones too live in.
All signature's will be collected an taken too GCC to show support in saving sheltered Housing Support.
Thanks M Robb
